Cape Home Educators believe in active citizenry and participation in the democratic processes. We have written and submitted our comments on the BELA Bill. Our comments are based on the results of a recent survey we conducted among home educators in the Western Cape and research done by LearnFree. It is also the result of our discussions with the Western Cape Education Department, and most importantly conversations we had with home education families.
We share your concerns about the impact the BELA Bill will have on home education and we will continue to engage with government, the Western Cape Education departments and the Department of Basic Education. We do need your assistance in this regard and ask that you submit your comments based on your personal experience. If you need some guidance in writing your comments you can find it here.
